Free Wall Paper Books

I'm not sure if everyone knows you can get free wallpaper sample books at Sherwin Williams and other places that sell wallpaper. They pull out of date books at least once per month. They're GREAT for so many crafts. I use them in photo frames, paper doll clothes etc. I love the black photo corner tabs (Dollar Tree) to put photos in the center of a frame using paper for the background. I use brooches or shiny bling buttons on them in frames or for centers on paper flowers. They make great drawer liners or backgrounds on bookshelves. The books are full of border strips with matching paper. Sometimes you get a book full of cloth pages to go with the paper. Endless uses!

I Keep Hoping

I blog surf daily. I check out new blogs from the never ending list posted on each blog. I comment a LOT on blogs but don't seem to have many followers or comments. A few faithful that I truly appreciate! I guess I'm feeling a little down about my blog. I have a lot more to share and after photos to post. I'm wondering what I can do to help my blog grow. Any suggestions?

Saturday Night Is Girls Night

I have a guest bedroom fixed up for my grand-daughters and another for my grandson's when they come.
Last night was girls night and we had FUN! I laid out all the tap/dance shoes and outfits I've found at yard sales plus a big bag of scrap lace, scarfs, flowers etc that their great-grandmother donated. We went to parties and weddings, worked in a store, taught school AND worked in the baby nursery at the hospital ALL in one night. We are girls hear us ROAR! 
I do believe they have Honey Darling's skills :)
The girls playing in their room @ Honey Darlings House.
